We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.

Does your family have a story to tell? Have you ever thought about writing your family history? Well, we can help you get started! Rather than create a list of events and dates that occurred in your family, start working on your family history by writing stories. Stories about real people are what make some of the most fascinating family histories. In this class, you will work on a story that highlights a significant event in the life of your family.

Bring your laptop or your journal, and make that initial move toward securing those precious memories of your own family. Everyone has a story, and we can help you get started telling yours. When you leave this class, you will be one story closer to preserving your valuable family history.

Registration Includes

Students will leave this class with one completed written story about their family. You will also receive tools for writing future stories, as well as resources for publishing and documenting these stories. Students will walk away with a clearer approach to documenting their family history.

Bring a paper journal or your laptop.
